Cenote Chikin Ha - Cenote Diving

Cenote Chikin Ha

Located 25 Km from Playa del Carmen, is the first cenote in a system that connects several cenote trough more than 10 km of underwater passages.

During the dive we move in the direction of Raibow Cenote and once we reach a depth of about 10 meters/33 feet strange visual effects can be seen, cause the fresh and salt water start to mix; we call that halocline. Moving close to the surface we can find a lot of roots of many plants searching for the water and creating an underground jungle.

Looking toward to the entrance we appreciate beautiful light effects. The maximum depth is 14 meters/45 feet and the huge passages create a spot for all the divers.
